Up next, former allies, former lovebirds, now turned bitter enemies do battle. CEO, Jeff Hardy wants to test Sasha Banks to see if she really belongs in Madness, and to earn back her contract, she has to beat Jeff Hardy in his own game, a ladder match!
DDD... the bell rings and the two gladiators stare each other down for a couple of seconds. Hardy smirked and chucked a bit, while Banks looked at him with a dirty, smug look. What she didn't expect was Hardy planting a kiss on her lips, then shoves her after the two break. Her back turned, Banks didn't take to kindly to that, but as she turned around, she walked right into a kick to the gut, followed by a Twist of Hate from Hardy!! Not even 1 minute into the match and Hardy has already taken his best shot! Hardy then quickly slides out of the ring to grab a ladder that was sitting at ringside. Hardy brings it into the match and sets it up in the middle of the ring. Hardy begins the climb to take down the contract. As Hardy gets closer to the top, Banks starts to stir and meets Hardy at the top of the ladder. The two trade blows just underneath the contract. Banks gets a few more jabs in before the ladder tips over, sending both competitors crashing to the floor, but not before they both hit the top rope with a lot of impact! Both superstars lay flat on the mat. Banks gets up first before Hardy, as the two would trade blows once again, with Banks gaining the upper hand again. She would then bounce Hardy's head into one of the rungs of the ladder. Hardy bounces back and elbows Banks in the jaw. Hardy quickly climbs about 3/4 up the ladder, and connects with a devastating Whisper In the Wind! Both superstars lay on the mat once again, but this time, it's Hardy back to his feet as he once again climbs up the ladder, this time, much slower. He reaches up to the hanging contract, but can't get a grip on it. Banks would recover and meet Hardy at the top of the ladder. The two trade blows before Hardy smashes Banks' head into the top rung. Hardy then would look for a Twist of Hate from the top of the ladder. (Continued in comments)
